💊 Rampant use of high doses of steroids is leading to uncontrolled blood sugar levels in many patients, suppressing their immune system, and encouraging this fungus called mucor to grow unchecked!
🤔 But is steroid overuse really the root cause?
🙈 Why should there be rampant use of high doses of steroids, with no monitoring of blood sugar levels?
🥵 Some of it may be attributable to the panicked patients and overworked doctors. However, there are deeper underlying causes why patients and doctors have been so deeply affected by this malady.
I see three causes:

Dear doctors, I can try to empathise with your concern..
Let’s consider a healthy 35 year old..
10-30 out of 1000 in this age group will land up in ICU, about 1 will die.. (ballpark figures based on current situation)..
This is unprecedented for an illness that starts as an innocuous viral URTI..
There’s no way, in the initial 5 days, for me as a doctor to know whether the patient sitting in front of me will be one of those 10-30 ICU admissions..

All of the above has just gotten much much more pronounced due to fear on all fronts..
At the same time, I know lots of doctors who are keeping the flame of rational empathetic medicine alive..
In my practice, only two things are new:
